Descendant of Hufflepuff

I don't understand where the conjecture that Smith might be related to the Hufflepuffs comes from. It's completely random and frankly seems totally unlikely. EmmyG 12:59, October 6, 2010 (UTC)

He shares his surname with Hepzibah Smith, who claimed to be a descendant of Helga Hufflepuff. That he's in Hufflepuff House reinforces the connection. - Nick O'Demus 13:04, October 6, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, right. Duh! I don't know how I missed that, considering I was just editing the Hufflepuff family article. EmmyG 14:46, October 6, 2010 (UTC)
On the other hand Smith is the most common surname in England and Scotland (more than 1%) and is almost as common in Wales. I think it's very wild conjecture to connect Hepzibah and Zacharias. It's like the Mark Evans thing. 77.86.116.164 20:19, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

Quidditch Captain

  • Where the hell was it ever stated what position he played on the Quidditch team, or that he was ever captain?
In Chapter 16 of OotP he is described a "skinny blond boy who harry vaguely recognized as being a member of the Hufflepuff quidditch team." --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 22:24, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
  • It's still never mentioned that he's the captain of the Hufflepuff team, so I don't know why that's on here as fact. 75.71.91.10 05:48, August 18, 2011 (UTC)

Year

It states in early years that Zacharias started in 1991. That's not known. In fact, G. Smith from HP and Me turned out to be a girl. Can anyone help me fixing it?--Rodolphus 09:37, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

I'm agree : there's no ref for this year (apart from the hatred that inspired the character, it's easier to say that he left school the day of the final battle because he was a traitor and not because he had not the age required) and also there's no ref for Quidditch Captain (maybe this last fact is said, but I searched this morning and no found it). Also there's a problem with this page. A pic is added who showing a boy at the battle of Hogwarts and people said that it's Smith because he has the same hairstyle (he hasn't a particular hairstyle, it should not be exaggerated, it is not the only blond in the school), there's no proof so this fact must not be added. Furthermore, in the book, Smith isn't at battle of Hogwarts so if a figurant has a very distant resemblance to Smith, it can have no report. --   Famini    talk    contribs   11:28, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

He has to be in Ginny and Luna's year because there are already five huff boys. Oliver, Roger, Ernie, Wayne and Stephan. (JanzPotter (talk) 15:46, July 8, 2014 (UTC))

No, he doesn't. Rowling has already said there's more than forty people per year. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 16:11, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Deathly Hallows

Hey people just wondering where in the book it mentions him pushing first years out of the way to get out of Hogwarts? I've read the book 3 times and haven't been able to find it. Thanks! Alumeng 18:48, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

Just before Harry spoke with Nick: "Beneath his fingers, Harry’s eyes flew open again. He leapt up from the plinth and tore back the way he had come, now in pursuit of his one last hope. The sound of hundreds of people marching toward the Room of Requirement grew louder and louder as he returned to the marble stairs. Prefects were shouting instructions, trying to keep track of the students in their own Houses; there was much pushing and shoving; Harry saw Zacharias Smith bowling over first-years to get to the front of the queue; here and there younger students were in tears, while older ones called desperately for friends or siblings. . . ." chapter 31 --   Famini    talk    contribs   18:51, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
